Therefore, having a nutritious and fulfilling lunch is very important to keep us going throughout the day. And where else better to go during lunch hour than the trendiest restaurants in town for their lunchtime set lunches?
These places are great for holding business lunch meetings with your clients, celebrating an occasion with your colleagues or even at times when you just feel like giving yourself a treat.

You know the food has to be good when a restaurant gets booked well in advance despite being housed in a location away from the bustling office crowd. The tranquillity is lost once inside the restaurant. A waitress piles her arms with several dishes, hastily serving them up before disappearing behind the kitchen doors.
Restaurant Ember at Hotel 1929 serves modern European cuisine, and it is not a secret that they have one of the best set lunches in Singapore.
It’s always nice to visit new restaurants run by young and talented chefs who are truly passionate about their food.
I first learned about Keystone Restaurant at Stanley Street a few months ago through my journalist friends. They told me about the excellent work Chef Mark Richards is doing at the restaurant, and it is one of the few places that use sous-vide cooking for most of the dishes on the menu.
I went there a while back, and ever since my visit, I’ve been recommending it to my friends. I’ll cut to the chase. If you like hearty meals with big portions, Keystone Restaurant is probably not suitable for you. But if you enjoy dining in a classy restaurant that serves refined and sophisticated food, this is the place to go.
